  • Island magazine Level 1, 91-93 Macquarie Street Hobart TAS 7000 Australia (map)

Island magazine Managing Editor Vern Field wants to help YOU perfect the art of proofing and editing in monthly 'Ask The Editor' sessions held in the Island magazine offices.

These sessions will be informal, open to anyone and will be led by the needs of the attendees. We welcome emerging and established writers, editors, proofreaders and communications professionals.

SECOND SESSION: MISUSED WORDS AND EXPRESSIONS
Do some words confuse you?
Are you mixed up about mixed metaphors? 
Do you worry about using weasel words?

This session will cover confused words, usage issues, redundancy, mixed metaphors, oxymorons, cliches, weasel words and more. 

There will be tea, coffee, milk and biscuits provided and attendees are welcome to BYO drinks (we can provide the wine glasses!)

Entry is $5 which can be paid on the night or via the link below.
